Rutgers University Distinguished Service Professor Clement A. Price opened a six-week National Endowment for the Humanities-funded display and speakers series at the branch last week, according to library staff.
The program series includes three other presentations and an ongoing screening of the Ken Burns television documentary, “The Civil War,” throughout Monday and Thursdays in June.
The three upcoming presentations include:
- A live performance by Linda Turash Productions of “Mary Todd Lincoln: Pass My Imperfections Lightly By” 7 p.m. Tuesday June 3.
- Chuck Winch and Lisa Wilkins perform Civil War era music 7 p.m. Wednesday June 18.
- Toms River Township Historian Mark Mutter will speak about “Lincoln and New Jersey, Ocean County and the Dover Rifles Group” 7 p.m. Wednesday June 25.
“Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War,” a traveling exhibition for libraries, was organized by the National Constitution Center and the American Library Association Public Programs Office. The traveling exhibition has been made possible by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
